Struggling to Comprehend
I have been trying to figure out how to write about the abject poverty that is so pervasive in the Fingerlakes region. During the summer months, everything screams tourism, wineries, camping, and never ending waves of verdant fields.
It is during the winter months that the rotting bones of this area show through the snow. Having lived in many different parts of the country, rural and urban alike... I feel like I am starting to ask different questions about the nature of poverty. Perhaps more importantly, I am starting to wonder about the future of poverty and wealth in America. For now, I plan on exploring this topic more through my images and my blog. I welcome discussion and comments.
